Introducing New Horse Dakota!
I posted about 2 months ago about the tragic lose of my beloved pony Shaymus. Although I still miss him every day and wish things had been different, we've added a new addition to the family.

His name is Dakota, I brought him home about 2 weeks ago. He is a 12 year old PaintxArabian. His previous owner was very sweet. She was only selling him because he was wasn't getting used, and he is a nice horse that deserves to be ridden and shown. She told me he had been shown by his owner before her, so we'll see what happens as far as competing with him. My mom is super excited about him. He's very relaxed and easy to ride. I tried him in a huge field and he never made a move to try anything, did everything he was asked quietly. Dallas is a bit much for my mom to handle, so Dakota will be more of her boy, but I'll definitely be riding him too. Dakota and Dallas already get along great. Dallas had been acting depressed and lethargic after Shaymus pasted. Having Dakota around has seemed to brighten him up again.

On another note Dallas and Dakota are at my house. I'm no longer boarding! Very excited to not have to drive to see them everyday. I'm going to be riding with a new trainer which I'm thrilled about! Can't wait to trailer Dallas in for lessons, I'll probably take Dakota to a couple lessons too. The new trainer will help take me to the next level and get my confidence back where it was before I moved to NY. I wish Shaymus could have been around to move into my barn, but I have his halter and lead hanging on a special hook with his name plate over it. I know he's there, just not in the same way Dallas and Dakota are.

Here are pictures (they don't wear halters when turned out anymore. That was for the first day they got turned out together so if someone got nasty we could separate them quickly. And they were supervised the first day)!

They are both lookers. But the Paint/Arabian is just STUNNING :).

Wow I love your barn! It's very nice 'rusic' look. And the paint X is gorgeous! I love the left side of his face.

Thanks guys! We had the barn built by a great local building company. It's so nice to not have to board anymore.
